Rainbrother are back with another majestic, dream-folk single, Fat Eggs out on 4th August 2017 via General Bird Records. To coincide with the release, the band will also be playing a number of UK tour dates.
The video for Fat Eggs premiered on Mahogany and is available to watch from Rainbrother's YouTube channel now.
The video consists of one long shot and was filmed on a subtropical afternoon in Copenhagen, thanks to global warming. After the session the band had to take a week's break from eating eggs and pickled cucumber.
Frontman Bjarke Bendtsen explains “Fat Eggs is a song about giving into late night temptations, lusts, desires and the beauty of being human. The song is also about not caring too much and eating fat eggs when they're on your plate and still hot”. The single, taken from Rainbrother’s debut album Tales From The Drought, feels instantly intriguing with its use of beautiful, spiralling out of key guitars and flawless harmonies.
The single is also available to stream now via the band's Soundcloud page.
Rainbrother was formed after Bjarke eventually found his way back to Copenhagen. While touring with The Migrant in Europe, he performed with a group of fellow Danish musicians and after moving back to his home turf, Rainbrother was born. Tales From The Drought was produced by Noah Georgeson (The Strokes, Joanna Newsom, Devendra Banhart) whose flickering elements have been spun into the group’s tight rock sound making the album both an earthy and elevating affair.
Rainbrother has already received praise from numerous well-regarded publications including Clash Magazine, The 405, Americana UK, Folk Radio as well as BBC 6music’s Steve Lamacq to name but a few. They also recently played SXSW festival where Bjarke found himself in difficult situation as US immigration officials refused to approve his visa after deciding he needed a second interview. As a result, the band played their first gig in Austin with Bjarke still on his living room couch in Copenhagen. Not wanting to let Trump win, the band played the rest of their parts with a pre-recorded projection of Bjarke behind them not missing a single beat and creating a truly unforgettable performance.
